While New South Wales has been relatively controlled amid the coronavirus pandemic, it’s worrying to see what is happening just one state over.
Down in Victoria we’ve seen somewhat of a second wave take over with numerous new cases daily and the Australian Defence Force about to be sent in to help control the situation.
But while things are looking a bit better here in NSW, we’re being told not to get complacent because it’s possible that the same thing could still happen here.
NSW Premier Gladys Berejiklian joined Jonesy & Amanda this morning with an update as to where NSW stands in the fight against COVID-19, as well as a stern warning against travelling interstate.
“Please don’t go to Melbourne at this current time,” she reiterated this morning.
“No citizen should go to Melbourne at this time… please don’t go down there, and if you do have family and friends who want to visit you from there, discourage them,” she added.
The Premier went on to reinforce the importance of maintaining COVID-safe rules.
“It only takes one or two people for it to spread, that’s why we’re saying even if you have a scratchy throat, get checked… Keep the COVID-safe rules, make sure you use hand sanitiser and keep that social distance!”
She added, “We have to be strict with our family and friends – come over when you’re well, stay home and get tested. Governments and health experts can give advice, but it’s up to us to do the right thing.
“We’re still at very high risk, and we don’t want to see anymore people die!”
